1. Luna Abyss
Luna Abyss, a first-person horror mystery game, has recently released a new trailer after months since its initial reveal. The developers continue to amaze with the showcases they are presenting. If you enjoyed playing Eternal, a PlayStation 5 exclusive game from last year, then you will love Luna Abyss. The game has a similar overall feel to it, but with its own unique twists and turns. Luna Abyss will be available on PC and next-generation consoles, with a release date expected by the end of the year. If you’re a fan of horror games, be sure
Coming up next, from June last year, we have a game called “On the Week of the Old Gods” published by Tabletop Productions. In case you missed it, this is a character customization-based action RPG adventure, similar in style to both Mass Effect and Dragon Age. It’s like what would happen if you mixed both and handed them over to an indie developer to take care of it. Here’s a trailer. This game is said to be coming out for PCs and consoles.
3. Pacific Drive
Pacific Drive, on the other hand, was announced a little less than a year ago as a first-person driving survival game with a running-based mechanic. This is how the developers describe the game, with the main aim being to bring scientific and phenomenal stories from road trip adventures, mixed with a somewhat stalker world. Pacific Drive is set to be released on PlayStation 5 and PCs only, sometime later this year.
4. Greyhill Incident
Greyhill Incident, on the other hand, was announced roughly a year ago and is finally coming to PCs in both current and last generation consoles, except for the Switch, as is typical for most horror games. But this is not just a first-person survival horror game, it’s based on alien and UFO abductions and incorporates open-world elements to some extent. Check it out! We now know that this game is coming out on June 9th.
5. Death in the Water
At number five, we have “Death in the Water 2“, the sequel to the gory “On the Water Hazard” simulation game. This is an almost five-hour game that combines elements of tower defense and strategy with horror, all in first person. It’s currently priced at around $20 and delivers excitement despite its short length.
If you missed it a few months ago, there was an action-adventure game announced that takes place on a glacier-covered Earth about 65 million years into the future. Technically, you play as a new species evolved from birds and must survive in a post-scientific apocalyptic Earth setting. The game is said to be coming out by the end of the year.
Next up, we have “Cocoon“, which was announced roughly six months ago. The game is described as an opponent reactive insectoid-driven top-down puzzle adventure, which is quite a mouthful. The game is being developed by the veteran cinematic developers at Playdead, the same team behind games like “Inside” and “Limbo”, which is quite the catch. “Cocoon” is set to release later this year and will be available on PC, Switch, and Xbox consoles.
8. Repo Man
I mentioned Repo Man a few weeks ago, but in case you missed it, after an entire year of silence, we finally came across some gameplay trailers. It’s a first-person open-world RPG, just like Cyberpunk 2077 but with a dash of steampunk and fantasy. You play the role of a Repo Man, and here’s a trailer for the game. It’s said to be coming out for PCs only later on this year.
9. After US
At number nine, we have “After Us“, a puzzle platform adventure game that was announced earlier this year. While it’s not a PlayStation 5 exclusive, it is exclusive to the next generation of consoles and also coming to PCs. The game is set in a future version of Earth where humans are on the brink of extinction, but the mother of Earth, Gaia, has given them a second chance. Here’s a trailer for the game. “After Us” is set to release on May 23 for next-gen consoles and PCs.
10. Funko Fusion
Number 10, announced just a week ago through IGN, is a brand new game called Funko Fusion. Developed by 1010 games and Funko themselves, it was primarily rumored around October last year, but we just got a new trailer for it, confirming that the game is going to be released for PCs, Switch, and all of the consoles sometime next year. We don’t really know much about this game other than the game’s description, which reads as an action-adventure AAA game similar to Lego games.
11. Tainted Grail: The fall of Avalon
Awakened Realms and developer Questline have announced that Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon, a well-received gothic-themed classic fantasy open world game that came out almost two months ago, has reached Zone 2 for its finished product and will be out of its Early Access phase in about two months. They have also released a new trailer for it. If you’re new here, this game is a mix of Skyrim, Dark Souls, and Gothic, with a lot of potential. Check out the trailer!
12. Chasing the Unseen
Number 12 is the first work of its indie developers from a few months ago. We have over here probably one of the best mixes of 2023 or ever imagined. What would you get by mixing a game company game, like for example, Journey, Flower, or Children of Light? Throw in a good dose of Shadow of the Colossus, and then some Zelda. That’s precisely what you get with this game here, Chasing the Unseen. This game is said to be coming to PCs only sometime later this year.
13. Neon Knights: Humanity Erased
Number 13, first mentioned early last year, is a game called Neon Knights. It’s a psychological thriller set in a frozen Copenhagen, Denmark in the year 2079. The game is story-driven, where you play the role of an exorcist in a digital form. Check out the trailer. Currently in development for PC only, it’s set to be released in mid to late 2023.
